Second quarter of 2015:
Bayer significantly improves earnings

The Bayer Group continued to grow sales in the second quarter of 2015 and significantly increased earnings. “All three subgroups contributed to the gratifying improvement in earnings,” said Bayer CEO Dr. Marijn Dekkers when the interim report was published on Wednesday. HealthCare posted considerable sales and earnings gains that were attributable to the further gratifying expansion of business with the recently launched pharmaceutical products and to the positive sales development at Consumer Health. At CropScience, sales matched the strong level of the prior-year quarter, while earnings improved. At MaterialScience, sales were level with the prior-year quarter. Earnings of this subgroup, however, posted a sharp improvement of almost 90 percent, mainly as a result of the improved demand situation and lower raw material costs. The preparations for the planned stock market flotation of MaterialScience are on schedule. Dekkers expressed his continued optimism for the year as a whole: “We are confirming our Group forecast for the operational performance of continuing operations.” The Group forecast has been adjusted to take account of the changes in exchange rates as of June 30, 2015.

An active substance that forms fine needles or tiny cubes is an absolute highlight for researchers. To manufacture a drug or plant protection agent, scientists need to know what its stable crystalline form looks like, as many substances only display the desired properties in this state. #Bayer researchers therefore structure promising active substances into a suitable crystalline shape right at an early phase of development in order to obtain crystals with optimum properties, such as the best possible solubility.
